Otters at Dale Fort
On November 13th a sixth form student about to survey the shore at Dale Fort Jetty Beach disturbed an otter, which ran into the water and swam off in the direction of Dale village. A week later the Dale Fort Housekeeper saw another (or possibly the same?) otter swimming in rough seas up and down the gullies off Dale Point. It caught a fish and climbed out onto the rocks, ate it, returned to the water and made off in the direction of Castle Beach.
